India Trip 1/3 (India)

Filed under: — Andy @ 8:28 am

Why did I go to India? I still don’t know the answer. It was a place I have never been to and didn’t really know what to expect. The experiences I had in India, both good and bad, really opened my eyes in a way. Especially coming from a country like Japan it was really hard to adjust to a country that was in most ways opposite of what I was used to. India was a very dirty, poor, and noisy country. The streets literally were the trash cans as well as the toilets. Everyone who talked to you only wanted to get money in some way. Getting into a car in India was a whole experience in itself. Drivers used their horn more than their brakes and lanes were nonexistent. Admittedly, India does have a deep history and religious aspects. However, I was not very interested in either. So will I ever go back to India? - Probably. India is such a huge country that it is unfair to judge it based on the 5 major tourist cities in the north. I was told that the small towns in the south are very nice and the people are welcoming. I would love to go hiking in the mountains of Cashmere, or do a desert safari in Rajasthan. Most of the people I met on my trip were in India for a few months. Even then it is not enough to see the country. My trip was still very interesting but I think I only got a taste of what India is like.

  1. I can’t believe how vast everything in India looks. All of the monuments, mosques and mausoleums look gargantuan.

    For some reason I really liked picture #39 with the kids playing cricket and livestock in the background.
